Nastradamus is the fourth album by American rapper Nas, released in 1999 on Ill Will Records and Columbia Records. It was originally scheduled to be released as a follow-up album composed of material from recording sessions for his third album, I Am..., which was released one month earlier. Due to bootlegging of the material, Nas recorded new music for Nastradamus to meet its November release date.

The album debuted at #7 on the Billboard 200 and #2 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, selling 232,000 copies in its first week. Upon its release, Nastradamus received generally mixed reviews from music critics upon its release, and the album is widely regarded as Nas' worst album. Despite its mixed reception, it achieved considerable commercial success and spawned two charting singles. One month after its release, the album was certified platinum in sales by the RIAA.
